We caught up with comedian Ant Campbell ahead of his appearance at Manford’s Comedy Night at Bonded Warehouse, Sunderland on Saturday 13th October.

So, tell us a bit about yourself and what you do?
My names Ant, I’m from Liverpool I do stand up and I spend most of my life fuming about Everton F.C. 

What’s the first record you ever bought?
Record? CD more like. It was NOW 46 – compilation of classics such as Sonique and Groovejet. Anthems. Iconic anthems.

What’s your guilty pleasure musically?
ABBA? Does ABBA count? ABBA are quality either way, make sure that makes the final cut.

Favourite film of all time?
Back To The Future! Love it. 

Your guilty pleasure film?
Back To The Future 3 – got slammed by the critics but they can leg it!

If you could recommend one TV series to binge watch, what would it be?
Binge watch? Breaking Bad probably. But my favourite TV show of all time is The Wire.

Your favourite book?
The Jungle. 

Who or what makes you laugh the most?
My best mate Luke, Malcolm Tucker, The Simpsons, and Kevin Bridges is my favourite comedian.

Who or what makes you sad?
Having to get the national express to Sunderland instead of the train because I’m skint. Oh, and Everton.

If you had super power, what would it be?
I reckon it’d be great to fly, just literally flying down to Tesco for a loaf, plus I wouldn’t have to get on a Ryanair flight ever again, be onto a right winner mate.

And finally, you get to play a board game with any three famous people from history, who do you choose and what’s the board game?
Probably have a game of Jumanji with Piers Morgan, Alan Sugar and Jeremy Clarkson in the hope that one of them gets sucked into the board and disappears for 26 years.

Ant Campbell appears at Manford’s Comedy Night at Bonded Warehouse, Sunderland on Saturday 13th October.
